From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. All members of staff that we dealt with appeared to be well trained and well motivated and couldn't do enough for us. It is located on a busy road so ther was of course some road noise. We will certainly stay again when we return to York.
"English guesthouse a perfect budget stay in York."
I wanted a quiet, convenient base for my York exploration. I could walk back and forth to the town to visit churches, museums and ruins of the city walls. The walking path was the lovely St. George Park with a river running through the center. The atmosphere at the Moorgarth was very cosy and homelike. A breakfast each day included eggs and meat cooked to order as well as coffee, yogurt, milk and orange juice. In the category of moderately priced lodging, this bed and breakfast is a really good deal.
Friars Rest was SO accommodating! My travel plans were a bit on either side of regular check in/check out times and Phil was willing to hold my baggage while I had more adventuring to do in York. The room and bed was VERY comfortable and I had a great night of sleep. Breakfast was wonderful! The location is a 10-15 minute walk from the heart of York if you are comfortable with directions. Taxi service is very quick if preferred. Also it's on a bus line to the rail station. Great experience!
Took my 5-year-old son to meet up with a good friend visiting York from overseas, so booked two rooms. Extremely clean and well maintained rooms and halls. Old-fashioned and basic without the old-fashioned inconvenience. Shower rooms seemed new, or at least extremely well maintained. Beds very comfortable and great fluffy clean duvets and sheets. My friend, who used to run pub B&Bs in the 1980s-1990, was very favourably impressed.
The staff were helpful and were friendly to my son. And on-site restaurant had good-quality Italian food -- another pleasant surprise.
